Deepest Sympathy

Today's card is made using the Colorless Blender Bleaching technique!  The tutorial for this fabulous technique has been done by Colleen Schaan - one of the amazing Copic Instructors in the USA, and you can find her fabulous tutorial in the Resources section at Splitcoaststampers!!

I began by following the tutorial by airbrushing Copics (B32, B34 and B37) onto some photographic paper.  Then I used my Mist It which had been filled with Colorless Blender Solution to spritz (not to heavily) a silhouette stamp (Upsy Daisy by SU) and stamped it onto my airbrushed paper.  It was cut out with Small Oval Nestabilites, matted with white cut with Large Ovals and then matted again with white and blue cut with two sizes of Label 4 Nestabilities.  The sentiment is from JustRite's Sympathy Nested Sentiments and Verse set, which fits perfectly inside the Fancy Tags Spellbinders.  Finally I created my base of alternating blue and white, embossing the top white layer with the Victoria EF.  I finished by adding some blue pearls to the corners.

Stamps - Upsy Daisy (SU), Sympathy Nested Sentiments and Verse (JustRite)
Paper - Photographic Paper, White, Blue
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Airbrush System, Colorless Blender, Mist It Spray, Victoria EF, Label 4, Large and Small Oval Nestabilities, Fancy Tags, Blue Pearls.
